"Brittney," the boots hissed in a voice that reminded me of nebulas beyond imagination, "life is short. The universe is full of casual destruction and never-ending entropy will one day destroy the world. You must buy us."
"But boots," I responded, trying to ignore the women who were pointing and laughing at me because I was on the ground speaking to a pair of shoes, "I have a set budget for every month and I already posted my budget on my blog. I have a fiduciary responsibility to myself and my readers to refrain from making any more purchases until November."
The guy swiped my card with a grunt and handed me my receipt. And so here I am, indulging in what could be my last days as a living being, wearing the most beautiful pair of over-the-knee boots. Budget or no, I am an organism most-pleased.
A dark look for Halloween week. Happy soon-to-be-Halloween!
